Peaches and Beets and Pickles... Oh, My!

So my dad's this canning fiend. Don't even try to talk to him in August. He's canning. Peaches, pickles, homemade salsa, you name it, Dad's probably just finished canning it. Beets. God knows there are beets.

Me, I've never canned. One of these days, I will, but given the coworker's mom just had a nasty incident with a pressure cooker and second-degree burns, I'm all pussy about the notion of pressure cooker canning.

But I just made freezer jam. Blueberry. With cinnamon. In 15 minutes, I'm having sourdough rye toast and blueberry jam. Giggle!
